Antigay activist George Rekers is indeed gay, according to the male escort he hired for a 10-day trip across Europe.

The escort spoke to the Miami New Times at length Wednesday night, detailing his sexual exploits with Rekers, who had previously claimed the young man accompanied him to Europe to help haul his luggage. He told the New Times he provided Rekers with daily body rubs in the nude.

"It's a situation where he's going against homosexuality when he is a homosexual," he told the New Times. "In all honestly [sic], he should disassociate himself from these [antigay] groups."

The escort, who up until now has been identified in the press as "Lucien," identifies himself as Jo-vanni Roman on his Facebook and MySpace profiles.

When contacted yesterday by The Advocate, Roman was hesitant to speak about Rekers but according to the New Times, a friend who filled him in on Rekers antigay record convinced him to speak out.

Rekers is a board member for the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality and a cofounder of the antigay Family Research Council, though the latter organization has attempted to distance itself from Rekers since this story broke.

We'll see how this pans out. That was a risky thing for the escort to do. He'd better watch his back.

I don't know which is more exciting, watching a dude like this go down, or watching a dude like this go down.

Thank you. I'll be here all week.

Seriously, I do enjoy watching these outspoken types take a dive. Call it a fetish.

A self-loather? Maybe gets off on living a double life? Plain old hypocrit? :confused:


Whatever it is, seeing right-wingers getting caught out is one of life's pleasures you must admit :D
That they do. If I were gay, I'd just come clean right out. Sure some one might hate me, but oh well, not my problem. I'd just move to San Francisco. No not because of the gay population, but because apparently thats the only city that isn't so retarded thinking. Then again this is all if I were.

Fear. They are desperately afraid. They are afraid of losing everything if people find out. I know that feeling.
Lee, you are one of the strong ones here. I don't (or at least I don't imagine it) see you having fear or living in fear.

Well, that settles it. The next time I hire a gay male escort to carry my luggage, I'm making sure I ask for a happy ending. I didn't know they provided that service.

There's New York, Chicago, LA and lots more.

Lee, you are one of the strong ones here.
I wasn't always.

You all are too cynical! I'm sure the minister indeed needed this good looking young man to help him with his luggage. Also, he probably needed frequent massages to deal with the pain of his afflictions. Sometimes it gets really hot in those hotel rooms, and so I'm sure the young man just needed to take all his clothes off to get more comfortable while the minister told him the Gospel.

Really, you all are just jumping to conclusions. :)

Are you frustrated today?

And he was just teaching him about Genesis when he stuck his snake in his garden of Eden.

I didn't know the escort's name was Jesus. (pronounced hey-soos)

Mr Rekers also apparently replied to a Facebook message from the blog Joe.My.God.

He wrote: "If you talk with my travel assistant... you will find I spent a great deal of time sharing scientific information on the desirability of abandoning homosexual intercourse, and I shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with him in great detail."

Well, I am having a nice laugh out of you guys today...
Oh, the best part isn't even in the quoted section of Lee's post.

http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/05/george_rekers_is_a_homosexual_says_escort.php

Rekers allegedly named his favorite maneuver the "long stroke" -- a complicated caress "across his penis, thigh... and his anus over the butt cheeks," as the escort puts it. "Rekers liked to be rubbed down there," he says.
I name him George "Longstroke" Rekers. You can just call him Longstroke for short.

Is there a betting pool on when Dobson goes down?

Sadly, since he started with more the "family" fixation than the anti-gay fixation, just based on the law of overcompensation my money would be on one of his kids denying requests for interviews at some point in the future.

Most likely. It would be good to see. I was forced to listen to that fool for a lot of my younger years.
